Winter Drought This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Record temperatures,

unknown to winter,

perch precariously

on the meteorologist's map.

The weather man steps back,

astounded.

The shape of the country,

hardly visible

under a giant green stripe.



The sun looks down

upon green grass,

shimmering

after each warm winter breeze.

The trees stand triumphantly

spreading their branches,

buds begin to blossom,

soon to be

botanical masterpieces.



However, the people are affected

in different ways.

Too tired to sleep,

too hungry to eat.

Is this winter?



They realize

they must prepare

for the harsh and cold

summer ahead.
